    Exclamation making my own drag sack

    I have decided to have a go at making a drag sack, I have found what I hope is a pretty durable material on eBay. Quick question, any advice on size of eyelets, I can't picture the size just by reading it and now don't really have the time to go and find the eyelets and punch so was going to order online.

    I was thinking of using para cord to secure and drag the carcass, so diameter would be quite fine.

    Any advice from someone who has done something similar would be great.

    To give you something to judge it by this material is 60gm, truck tarpaulin pvc is 650gm, truck curtain pvc is 950gm
    and the cloth used in tarpaulins is either 12 or 16 ounce.
    If you actually intend dragging this it's not going to last too long.

    PM me if you want any advice on materials, eyes etc

    Tried it but kept getting damaged, now use one of these with a drag rope, 58.

    Cheers Rod, going out Saturday, so hopefully I'll be able to give it a proper test. I'll put something together for here too.

    You are a gentleman
